Return of the YouBike

YouBike relaunched

We always loved the YouBike so we were sorry when the original business failed. The YouBike promised cardiovascular exercise for a wide variety of users including those with spinal cord injuries, those recovering from a stroke or those copeing with neurological conditions such as MS.

The product wasn't perfect though and the original unit didnt provide enough foot and ankle control for many potential users - especially when trying to use the unit in the lying position.

The YouBike can be used in a lying position

When YouBike NZ failed, UK entrepreneur Patrick Boland was left with a warehouse full of units and has not only secured future manufacture of the design, he has revised and updated the design to improve technical aspects such as the bearings, friction brake and the foot and ankle control issue.  So we are pleased to be able to offer the YouBike to clients once more.  Oh and the price is lower too - the original price of the YouBike was more than £2000 at launch - and now we will offer the base unit at a price of £1495 ex VAT.  The calf supports will be an optional extra. More details very soon.
